  1. Improved Microcalorimeter Detectors for X-ray Chemical Shift Mapping

    SBC: STAR CRYOELECTRONICS LLC            Topic: 9020868TT

    X-ray fluorescence spectroscopy is a widely used and extremely sensitive analytical technique for qualitative and quantitative chemical analysis. Superconducting Transition Edge Sensor (TES) microcalorimeter detectors have now been developed that achieve an energy resolution of 2 eV for 1.5 keV X-rays, which is sufficient to enable the measurement of the small shift of the X-ray line position that ...

  2. Dynamic Frequency Passive Millimeter-Wave Radiometer Based on Optical Up-Conversion

    SBC: Phase Sensitive Innovations, Inc.            Topic: 941D

    In the proposed effort, we will leverage this extensive experience and capabilities to realize a frequency agile mmW radiometer that can cover the range of DC-110 GHz and can be scaled to DC-200 GHz under Phase II. Ours is a photonic system that multiplies and up-coverts a low-frequency reference signal onto an optical carrier (laser) using EO modulation, then uses the modulation sidebands to inj ...

  3. Carbon Monoxide Detector For Aviation Oxygen Systems

    SBC: VISTA PHOTONICS, INC.            Topic: N122120

    Aircraft On-Board Oxygen Generating System (OBOGS) selectively filters compressed air from the aircraft's engine to remove nitrogen and other gaseous contaminants to provide the aircrew with an oxygen enriched breathing gas. During shipboard operations, Navy aircraft are particularly vulnerable to excessive levels of toxic byproducts from ingesting the jet exhaust from other aircraft. Under s ...

  7. Ship Shape: Three-dimensional ship modeling for submarine combat systems

    SBC: Stellar Science Ltd. Co.            Topic: N131024

    The rapid identification of ships from periscope and other imagery is a capability important to a variety of submarine missions, including sea control, anti-surface warfare, battle group support, covert operations landings, and ISR (intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance) operations. When spotting a new vessel, the imagery taken from submarines can be useful to construct three-dimensional ...

  8. Advanced Shipboard Mission Payload Handling System

    SBC: Quantum Engineering Design, Inc.            Topic: N131054

    The QED team proposes an Advanced Payload Handling System (APHS) capable of semi-autonomous and/or wireless remotely controlled, omni-directionally maneuvering operations. Selected design candidates will be evaluated with respect to their ability to provide an assured capability of acquiring and lifting both palletized and uniquely shaped payloads from the confines of a standard ISO container or f ...

  9. Binary Static Previrtualization

    SBC: Galois, Inc.            Topic: N131061

    Modular software development helps enable application developers to quickly write sophisticated applications. However, in most instances only a small fraction of the functionality included in a particular software components is needed. Not only is there a performance cost, but the prevalence of security vulnerabilities suggests that even unused functionality in binaries and shared libraries can be ...

  10. Crowdsourcing as a Map Reduce Job

    SBC: MANAGEMENT SCIENCES INC            Topic: N131063

    MSI proposes to develop automated mechanisms to dissect incoming queries and engage appropriate cloud-based resources to address them. To automate this process, we propose iterative query refinement between an automated analyzer (called the Matchmaker) and human experts. The Matchmaker will use keyword and semantic analysis to identify query topics. These topics will engage people with expertise i ...
